"I've decided I want to wait until the spring," said Johnson. "I like some of the schools that are recruiting me, but I want to see if any of the higher ones offer a scholarship."
Johnson said he is particularly interested in a Pac-10 program.
"Stanford is really the school I'd like to go to, if everything works out," said Johnson. "I spoke with Tony Fuller and he said that their staff viewed me as a possible walk-on. But Coach Fuller said he likes me and their scholarship situation may be different in spring."
Cal, Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, Lehigh, UC Davis and UC Irvine are among the other programs that have shown varying levels of interest in Johnson.
"They're all good schools," said Johnson. "But I want to play this season and see what happens."
